NYX Powder Blush in Mauve, Pinched & Bourgeois Pig

Hey my beauties I hope you are all well :) 
Todays review is a long time coming and to be honest I have been kicking myself that I havent yet reviewed these beauties for you.  Honestly I am sure there is enough reviews on these for you to check out as they are one of the best known products sold by NYX.  
I got my blushes from varies places my first one I got from the Non Pariel site.  The second I got from a very reliable ebay seller and of course the 3rd I got from Cherry Culture
They cost $5 each and well worth the price as you are getting 4g of product.  There are about 30 shade YES you are reading right 30 shades to choose from I love it :) I have 3 so far :) :) Usually when you look for a drugstore blush you will only get a very tiny amount of shades to choose from normally only around 4 -8 shades but having 30 shades to choose from is brilliant I love the fact that everyone of every skin tone will find their shade or even more than one shade to suit them 

I am sure you can tell this is going to be a positive review as I have more than one of these blushes and bought at different times ;)  You would be crazy to pass them if you did pass them because these blushes are to die for.  The packaging is cute, small and sturdy I absolutely love how they can fit in your purse :) :) 
Now that we have the packaging over with let start with the shades and first up is 

Mauve:  When choosing this blush I wanted to choose something I could use on an everyday basis something that was going to give me a beautiful natural look on my cheek without making it obvious I was wearing blush.  This certainly is the blush for that :)  If you are fair to medium skintone this blush will suit you down to the ground.  If you are medium to dark I am afraid this will be too light to show up on your skin 
I really do not know why this is called Mauve because its more like a soft baby pink shade to me.  It is sheer at first but it builds up to a nice natural pinky shade.  As its matte it is a little chalky but nothing to give out about ;) 

Next up is 
Pinched:  One of my favourites out of the two :)  I am in love with this little beauty.  Pinched has been compared to Nars Orgasm blush so you can just imagine how popular this shade is.  The best thing about this blush is that it is suitable for every skin tone meaning its hugely pigmented and hugely flattering.  This blush contains shimmer but the shimmers make you cheeks look more glowing than like a disco ball.  Pinched is a stunning shimmery more vibrant pink with a peach undertone.  I absolutely love this and recommend it to everyone :) :) Be warned this blush is very pigmented one swipe of a brush could be more than enough especially used with a light hand xxx

And lastly we have 
Bourgeois Pig:  One of their newest shades to the collection :)  The perfect shade for Summer !!!! Actually the perfect shade for all year round especially Winter.  This blush is another matte :) :) To be honest it looks alot like Pinched in the package but its alot more Pinker.  There is no peach undertone just you very pigmented perfect pink shade.  If I had to pick an undertone it would have a slight red undertone.  Wow this looks amazing and gives a beautiful healthy pink flush to the cheeks.  I am think the blushing bride on her wedding day wearing this on her cheeks :)  This is also a perfect shade for every skin tone as its buildable.  Warning to all you pale skinned gals out there, use with a light hand as you may end up looking a little more ready for the circus lol 

And now for the wonderful swatches :) 

Thought you would like them :) :)  Well I love these blushes they are amazing and even more amazing because of the price tag.  The pigmentation is out of this world.  Mauve looks to be less pigmented but that is only because is a more natural blush compared to the two other shades.  I love each and every one of them the same for their performances but I just can not resist "Pinched" more.  I just love how it gives a stunning healthy glow.  I applied just a light swatch of Pinched on my cheeks and it literally looks like ive been lightly pinched on the cheeks :) :) 
I highly recommend these to you all to try if you haven't already I promise you will not be disappointed.  Make sure to google swatches before buying the shade so you can be sure the shade is exactly what you want.  I will surely be back with a part two of these blushes as I plan to purchase more shades :) 
I really hope you enjoyed this review and until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

These are so pretty. The pale me would choose Mauve but the part of me that LOVES bright colours is eyeing up Bougeois pig. :D

I have never tried a NYX blush before, I will have to check those links out and nab myself a few. Lots to choose from from 30 shades. That's amazing.
